I still remember many years ago, when Bill Clinton got booed at a NASCAR race. When I first heard about it I remember wondering who’s bright idea it was to have him appear there. I couldn’t believe his handlers had so terribly misunderstood the NASCAR crowd. Tonight, on the other hand, Dick Cheney was greeted with loud cheers.
Update: Just to be clear, I did not mean to suggest that NASCAR fans are all Republicans, just that most are not Bill Clinton Democrats. Now Zell Miller Democrats… that’s another story. (Follow the link to my favorite Zell Miller picture. Dale Sr. fans will like it, too).
